Cardiac remodeling is a key determinant in the clinical course and outcome of heart failure and characterized by cardiac hypertrophy, fibrosis, cardiomyocyte apoptosis and inflammation. The anti-inflammatory, anti-apoptotic and anti-fibrotic effects of paeoniflorin have been identified in various types of tissue and cells. However, the role of paeoniflorin(More)
PURPOSE 3,3'-Diindolylmethane (DIM) is a natural component of cruciferous plants. It has strong antioxidant and anti-angiogenic effects and promotes the apoptosis of a variety of tumor cells. However, little is known about the critical role of DIM on cardiac hypertrophy. In the present study, we investigated the effects of DIM on cardiac hypertrophy. (More)
In order to find out the optimal composition of novel Nd-Mg-Ni alloys for hydrogen storage, the isothermal section of Nd-Mg-Ni system at 400 °C is established by examining the equilibrated alloys. A new ternary compound Nd4Mg80Ni8 is discovered in the Mg-rich corner. It has the crystal structure of space group I41/amd with lattice parameters of a = b =(More)
